“Mediocre food at exorbitant prices.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

My husband and I were overly excited at the prospect of Japanese while on vacation to get a break from the limited choices on South Padre Island. The food was highly disappointing here. I got the spicy beef and he got the teriyaki salmon, they were both lacking in flavor and the presentation was not representative of Japanese cuisine. The side dishes that accompanied them(rice, salads and miso soup) we're lacking flavor as well. At $20 an entree our food came up to about $60 and was NOT worth it!

“Fabulous experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

We had a fabulous experience at this Japanese Hibachi restaurant. The Hibachi was very skilled and had a great sense of humor. The food was excellent - perfect flavor combinations. The sauces took the food to another level. Our party ordered the veggies and fish with the fried rice and everyone enjoyed the food. The cold sake we tried (it was the sweeter one) was another hit. The tempura was not that great. Overall we had a great time at this restaurant.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

Great sushi and we loved the food that was done on the hibachi.
The fried rice was perfect.

The server was not very knowledgable about the steaks or menu in general. We went with friends and this was their first time here. The drinks we had were terrible. We mentioned it to another server. They gave us hot saki to make up for it. We were told that they werent going to charge us for the drinks. However they did. We weren't going to make a big stink about it. The server gave us the wrong bill. They need to work on their service. Might be back.
